In 1986, Citymeals Co-Founder Gael Greene and then Board Member Joan Weill conceived the Power Lunch for Women as a spoof on the concept of the power breakfast.

Power Lunch for Women

Unable to take place last year, we celebrated with a one-of-a-kind virtual celebration honoring both our meal recipients and the thousands of ordinary New Yorkers stepping up in the crisis to help their frail aged neighbors. 

Reflecting on one of the most challenging years in our city’s history, we have decided to relaunch the event this fall as the Power Lunch for Citymeals on Wheels. More than ever we all must come together in the fight against elder hunger, working to ensure our homebound elderly have something to eat every day of the week.

On November 18, 2021, leading New Yorkers from the worlds of business, art, politics and entertainment will gather to honor Board Vice President Lizzie Tisch for her efforts on behalf of the city’s most vulnerable population. 

 individual tickets and tables now. Corporate sponsorships and program ads are also available.
